The School of Information Science and Technology (SIST)  in the newly
founded ShanghaiTech University  invites highly qualified candidates
to fill multiple tenure-track as well as tenured positions as founding
faculty members of SIST . Candidates should have an exceptional
academic record or demonstrate strong potential in frontier research
